Yes, this is for 26", not 650. The rider is just over 5' so this is a way to make a small frame with relatively standard geometry. I tried to link the points of the S&S couplers with the head tube collars and the fork crown....this makes for a little more deluxe look on a tig welded frame. I even had some smaller down tube logos to fit the scale of the frame and not totally dominate the look.
This bike will see lots of gravel roads up in Wisconsin and elsewhere in the great lakes region. The rider has done numerous endurance rides and this will be the new bike of choice for those events in the future , not to mention the occasional trip overseas.
